Rose, a single mother and recovering alcoholic, sees her current lover and father of her expected baby as a Knight in Shining Armour. He will provide her with the loving and secure family life she craves. Her eight year old daughter, in foster care, will be restored to her but her social worker is sceptical and Rose's friends imply he may not be all she thinks he is. What if they are right and he has a hidden agenda? Such a revelation could plunge her into a morass of despair, from which she would need to find the will and strength to rebuild her life, become more mature and no longer be a perpetual victim.
